The Connected Centers Plan is a street connectivity plan for the Jade District and Rosewood Neighborhood Centers. The plan will develop a strategy for creating new street and pedestrian connections in neighborhood centers in eastern neighborhoods, which are expected to experience population growth in the near future and which have poorly connected street networks.

Planning staff will coordinate with the Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability’s Better Housing by Design team, which is focused on improving the design of new housing developments in the multi-dwelling zones throughout the City of Portland.
